RECOGNISING THE TRUE HEROES OF WESTCOUNTRY SPORT
Jack Nowell, Tom Daley, Tonia Crouch, Helen Glover…
The list is endless when it comes to sporting superstars Devon and Cornwall has produced.
But for every Nowell or Daley, there are those unsung heroes working hard behind the scenes, helping tomorrow’s stars reach their full potential.
And that is why you are being given the chance to nominate those who deserve recognition for their contribution to sport in the shape of the Devon and Cornwall Sports Awards, which are being held at Plymouth Pavilions on Monday January 28, 2019.
It is purely for the love of the sport that they give up their time to make their own vital contribution, whether it be coaching a team, or helping out behind the scenes to ensure people can enjoy sport.
Their loyalty and dedication is known within clubs, but we want you to spread the word further by nominating them for an award. And who knows, they might be standing on stage at Plymouth Pavilions on Monday January 28 2019 collecting their award.
Nominations open today and you, the general public, are being asked to put forward the name of the person or people you feel are the most deserving winners of each of the awards categories.
Nominees will be judged by a panel and shortlisted, not on the number of nominations they receive, but on their overall contribution to sport in Devon and Cornwall.

St Austell Brewery
St Austell Brewery has been brewing in Cornwall since 1851 and runs an award-winning estate of over 170 of the most popular pubs in the South West.
Its beers are multiple award winners, while its iconic pubs and hotels in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset are renowned for excellent beers, locally-sourced pub food and a warm welcome.
Independent and family owned, St Austell Brewery is one of the largest private employers in Cornwall with a workforce of more than 1,500 people.
The company is also the South West’s largest wholesaler of wines, spirits, minerals, lagers and beers, serving more than 5,000 free trade pubs, hotels, bars, clubs and restaurants in the South West.
The strategic acquisition of Bath Ales in 2016 and the development of a new, £7million brew house there has given Bath Ales a new lease of life and provides a strong base at the eastern end of its operating region to strengthen its presence and enhance its ability to service customers while saving on logistics.
Through its award winning beers brands Tribute and Korev, St Austell Brewery has been a long-term supporter of South West sport, from grass roots to county and beyond.
Tribute also sponsors Plymouth Argyle, Cornwall, Somerset and Gloucester Cricket and traditional sports such as the Cornish Pilot Gig Rowing Association, governing one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.
Beneath this organisational level, its pubs are proud to support and sponsor their local community teams though fundraising, shirt sponsorship or other means.
Korev has become inextricably linked with the south west surf and music culture, backing many of the major music festivals across the summer season.
It also sponsors the UK Pro Surf Tour as well as local surfers Luke Dillon and Lucy Campbell, who were both selected to surf for Team GB in the recent World Surf championships in Tokyo.
In May this year, St Austell Brewery was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for its sustainable development.
The awards described it as a Cornish brewer and pub company that aims to deliver distinctive customer experiences through great products, innovation and sustainable business operations.
